Can UFC Snag Contenders From Pride?
 
We all feel that the talent pool of the UFC is weak right now. The question is can the UFC draw contenders over from Pride or is it going to have to farm the talent that it already has available?

i hope so because the pride stable is much stronbger with the ppvs all evenly mathed or superfights and the ufc relys on one main event ala boxing if ufc could snatch any one it should be rampage who was a free agent not so long ago

Rampage is an Ex-UFC fighter. Do you think that they should get back what they once had or try for the new names?

It would be nice to see the UFC try the Open Weight Grand Prix. That would be great.

i doubt it cuz they would make less money and most of them are there because they want to be champions in pride..they might be able to get some of the guys that left back..but i doubt that too..unless they can come and beat one decent guy and get a title shot after one fight like anderson silva..

yea they can Im sure they will sign 1-2 guys from PRIDE every year, but im sure PRIDE will sign guys from the UFC as well..i dont see all the best fighters ever being in one organization, thats how it should be tho

Do you think he could beat Liddell now? I sure don't, I think Rampage has pasted his prime.

There really is no need for them to do so since they already have a vast supply of guy's that fight the US that would do it for less than the usual Pride guy. Signing Pride guy's is not really going to help PPV buy's either as the casual fans don't know (or care) about them. Its all a matter of economics.

Pride does have a MUCH deeper talent pool and the names would be well known soon after they got signed. If they're able to get a name like Cro-Cop or Nogueira, that would bring endless talent.

Rampage was never in the UFC

My apologies. I stand corrected.

I guess he would be a good one to bring in. It's just rare that he has such a well known name in the US and has not fought in the UFC.
